The USSR was faking photographs using airbrushes in the 1920s and 30s.

Total of these labor camp deaths: 271,304

73,137 This figure was reported in The New York Times on March 3, 1991 and was based entirely on the wartime German concentration camp records that had been captured by the Soviets and just recently released. According to this figure, of those dead, 38,031 were Jews. These records state that the total of all persons who died in the ENTIRE German prison camp system from 1935 to 1945 were 403,713. To repeat: a total of 403,713 persons of all races and religions was officially recorded to have died (of all causes. typhus, old age, measles, etc.-and execution) in the entire prison camp system over a 10 year period. Of those 403,713 a total of 73,137 died at Auschwitz. Of those 73,137 who died at Auschwitz, 38,031 were Jews. were is the 6 million? 
Obviously there were camps full of Jews, and obviously a lot of them died. Some portion of them were even deliberately killed. But the whole thing called the 'Holocaust' is a mess of exaggerations, lies, and outright nonsense. And honestly the details don't even matter. Even if it all happened as Jews claim, Jews are still fucking terrible for every country that has any contact with them. They don't deserve much sympathy in the first place, and the fact that they use the Holocaust as a political weapon means they deserve even less.

The media lies, it always has. they have lied about Trump since he was elected. they lie daily, they lied about Syria, they lied about Paddock they lied about Parkland. There is a STRONG fucking possibility that they lied about World War 2. The more time that goes by after the event, the more time there is to makeup lies. Does that mean EVERYTHING is a lie? nah, it means you better study up on that shit yourself or you are just a useful idiot shilling for a cause long since past that you were not even alive to witness first hand.
Supposed fakes and "restored" originalsSupposed fakes and "restored" originals

Supposed fakes and "restored" originals

...according to holocaust deniers. It's interesting, because I have yet to come across a (Soviet?) publication that showed merely the images on the left and tried to pass them off as authentic. In fact, various search tools only yielded me denier websites who had already "uncovered this hoax" with the fake/original comparison shots as shown above. Chances are, deniers photoshopped the left images themselves, only to discredit them with the originals on the right and then say "woah guys, look what we uncovered!" This doesn't seem to be the work of "professional" holocaust deniers like Udo Walendy or anyone at CODOH, which is why you wont find this plastered over there, as those folks usually seize any opportunity they get to try and prove photo faking. Note how these foolish hoaxers even had the audacity to keep the ARC website watermark on one of the images they grabbed from the net and doctored.

How denier photo-fakery is easily exposed

In a similar fashion there's another photo-comparison circulated by these denier photoshop clowns where the corpse of the Muselmann that survivors of Dachau are pushing into one of the ovens as a demonstrated re-enactment of the cremation operation to US army photographers has been photoshopped away. The pictures speak for themselves.

The deniers also try to claim the "Judenaktion in Ivangorod" photo is fake

This photo was attached to a letter of a German soldier, intercepted by the Polish resistance in Warsaw. It bore the caption "Ukraine 1942 - Judenaktion in Ivangorod", a misspelling of Ivanhorod. The original print was owned by Tadeusz Mazur and Jerzy Tomaszewski and now resides in Historical Archives in Warsaw. Holocaust deniers have pointed out that several publications only show a cropped version of this picture focusing on the man aiming his rifle at the mother and child, instead of publishing the entire image, and accuse the croppers of being deliberately deceptive this way. But the cropping has nothing to do with sinister propaganda: The photo is sometimes cropped to zoom in on the terrified woman clutching her child the instant before the rifleman's bullet smashes into her skull. It is a horrific visual image which graphically sums up what the Einsatzgruppen were all about - cruel inhumanity. The uncropped image isn't any less sinister at all. We see more unarmed people cowering in fear on the right, and more rifles being aimed at them from the extreme left, only lending credence to the conclusion that this wasn't a lone Nazi in the middle of nowhere posing with his rifle trained at a mother and child, but rather part of a group (both killers and victims) as was the customary practice with the Einsatzgruppen shootings (they are called Gruppen for a reason). The only difference I can observe here, is that the victims are not naked, but without source that this was how all Einsatzgruppen victims were dumped into their graves (and the following photo also questions this practice as customary), I think raising this issue is meaningless. One popular denier theory is that the Nazis are actually selflessly brave souls protecting the civilians from enemies to the extreme right of the image, out of frame. Essentially, the civilians are alleged to be caught in the moment of going to ground while the Nazis fire above their heads. This sounds fine and dandy, were it not for the fact that there is a dead person right next to the boot of the Nazi executioner, while the Nazis themselves are standing tall, making no effort to get to cover themselves. Such a scenario goes against any and all military training, where going to ground while taking enemy fire becomes instinct. And when under enemy fire, nobody in their right mind would have the time to take a photo either. One interesting point deniers have raised however, is pointing out the lack of a mass grave nearby. This would corroborate eye-witness accounts of Einsatzgruppen shooting their victims near mass graves, so that the corpses could be disposed of easily. Shooting them in the middle of nowhere would mean they would have to leave the corpses lying about, or carry them with them for disposal, the latter a very unlikely scenario. However, notice the height of the cameraman in the photo. The photographer/camera is at knee-height of the executioner. This leads me to believe the photographer took the photo while being inside a pit himself. And last but not least, notice the shovel next to the cowering civilians. What on earth is a shovel doing in the middle of nowhere, unless of course, it was used for digging? Some holocaust deniers have suggested the Einsatzgruppen were primarily there for intel gathering, and quelling unrest (such as armed partisans), but this is incorrect. You may be surprised to know that the German Army had their own rear area commands (Korück, Oberfeldkommandantur, Feldkommandantur, etc.) already in place, manned with security battalions. The German armed forces had their own counter-intelligence units (the Abwehr) and field police. The Einsatzgruppen of the SS were unnecessary for any other task in the rear areas except the murder of civilians. And woman and infant partisans? Really? And yugoslavian firearms and uniforms in Ukraine? It's funny how the Mauser rifle they're trying to discredit looks so similar to the one in the photo - and even the M24 is a Mauser variant. The author(s) in the denier url quoted in the image above, is in fact also very careful at labeling this photo as anything but authentic: http://www.strangehistory.net/2013/07/28/image-murder-of-woman-and-child-at-ivanhorod/
This is a German uniform

This is a German uniform

Typical German Schutzpolizei uniform (note the tell-tale dark cuffs), as can be seen in the photo of German stooges posing in front of the destroyed Horák family farm to the right, taken in Lidice, 1942, during or after the Lidice massacre. All other features on the uniform match as well. For deniers to claim the guy at Ivanhorod is a Soviet either displays their ignorance or is deliberate deception. Regarding Lidice and the other photo, a tale of bestial revenge: On May 27, 1942, SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, Deputy Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia, had been attacked (Operation Anthropoid) in Prague by Free Czech agents to assassinate him. They shot at Heydrich as his car slowed to round a sharp turn, then threw a bomb which exploded, mortally wounding him. Heydrich managed to get out of the car, draw his pistol and shoot back at the assassins before collapsing in the street. Reinhard Heydrich survived for several days, but died on June 4th from blood poisoning. Meanwhile the Gestapo and SS hunted down and murdered Czech agents, resistance members, and anyone suspected of being involved in Heydrich's death, totaling over 1000 persons. In addition, 3000 Jews were deported from the ghetto at Theresienstadt for extermination. In Berlin 500 Jews were arrested, with 152 executed as a reprisal on the day of Heydrich's death. As a further reprisal, Hitler ordered the small Czech mining village of Lidice to be liquidated on the fake charge that it had aided the assassins. In one of the most infamous single acts of World War II, all 172 men and boys over age 16 in the village were shot while the women were deported to Ravensbrück concentration camp where most died. Ninety young children were sent to the concentration camp at Gneisenau, with some spared and taken later to Nazi orphanages if they were "German looking". The village of Lidice was then destroyed building by building with explosives, then completely leveled until not a trace remained, with grain being planted over the flattened soil. The name was then removed from all German maps. Perhaps now you understand how Aktion or Einsatz Reinhard got its name.
Another denier image, this one trying to discredit the "Letzte Jude von Vinnitsa" image

Another denier image, this one trying to discredit the "Letzte Jude von Vinnitsa" image

This is a picture currently stored in the US Library of Congress, courtesy of the USHMM Photo Archives. A picture from an Einsatzgruppen soldier’s personal album, labeled on the back as “Last Jew of Vinnitsa” in German, it shows German soldiers of the Waffen-SS and the Reich Labor Service (Reichsarbeitsdienst) looking on as a member of Einsatzgruppe D prepares to shoot a Ukrainian Jew kneeling on the edge of a mass grave filled with corpses, near Vinnitsa, taken in either 1941 or 1942, sometimes mislabeled 1943 in archives, but most likely 1941, as thousands of Jews from Vinnitsa and its surrounding areas were massacred at the time: There were two mass shootings in Vinnitsa, on the 16th September, and the other on 22nd September. A subsequent massacre of Jews appears to have been of Jews brought in from outside the district. This is the evidence for the date of this photograph. There was one eye witness to the procedure involved. Wehrmacht officer Lieutenant Erwin Bingel had been ordered to assist the Commandant of Uman district with men to guard the railway lines and around the airport. The Jews of the area had been ordered to gather for a ‘census’. In fact you can find a whole bunch of Einsatzgruppen photography - with captions and archival source as well - here: http://history1900s . about . com/od/holocaust/tp/Einsatzgruppen-Pictures . htm As usual, holocaust deniers spin a completely different yarn, as evidenced in the image description above. One has said the following: "Those arent German uniforms and that is not a German pistol in the soldier's hand. The soldier in the image is wearing a Soviet M35 uniform and is holding a Tokerev TT33 pistol. The boy right behind the arm of the soldier wielding the pistol (he looks no more than 16-17 years old perhaps younger) is wearing a Soviet M35 airforce uniform. You can distinctly see everything the soldiers are wearing are Soviet issue, and do not corrospond to German uniforms or equipment." ...which of course, is absolute nonsense because on an enlarged version of the photo viewable here: http://1 . bp . blogspot . com/-1MaLAzQo5AM/UT-wcSzQthI/AAAAAAAAC5M/SN218aYs4Mk/s1600/The+last+Jew+in+Vinnitsa,+1941 . jpg you can clearly see the Nazi Reichsadler on at least 6 men's uniforms, and one of the soldiers is wearing shoulder pauldrons indicating he is part of a Heer band. Soviet uniforms, huh? As to what pistol the executioner is using, the deniers trying to say it's either a Korovin TK or Tokerev TT33 are being deliberately dishonest because it is ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL. The following article gives you an overview of the various pistols used by the Nazis during WW2, and as you can see, not only did they use a bunch of different ones, but many of them look very similar to each other: http://www . imfdb . org/wiki/List_of_firearms_used_by_German_Armed_Forces or https://en . wikipedia . org/wiki/List_of_World_War_II_firearms_of_Germany It could be a Walther PP, a Sauer 38H, a Mauser HSc, and for the record it would be a deliberate lie to claim Germans just used German or Austrian manufactured weaponry during the entire war. To be able to tell with certainty what type of pistol is used in the image would even make a firearms expert shake his head in disbelief at the level of bold conviction holocaust deniers employ when making their claims, especially when somewhere else they are accusing their opponents of the very same thing. Point 3 is nonsense, because the victim's arms do not seem to be on a position which would imply they were tied behind his back. The white blob rather looks like a hand bandaged with white cloth to me. Point 4 is also nonsense, because this grey "fog" does not appear to cloud the bystanders' faces in the uncropped original, which can be viewed here: https://s-media-cache-ak0 . pinimg . com/564x/e4/07/1c/e4071c86a1c07c4a7f18e6f37d251cae . jpg You can also see structures in the background toward the extreme left and right of the image. So chances are, the denier who made this infographic applied some photo manipulation himself. The other points are also moot because the uncropped version is readily available on the net; the fake border and creases is something that is NOT part of the original photo (again, denier photoshop at work) and the uniforms are very much German (Wehrmacht and SS uniforms), including the guy third from left in the cropped version with the white, triangular shoulder pauldrons who is a Gefreiter (corporal) from a Wehrmacht band. Clearly there was something ceremonious about this image (Last Jew of Vinnitsa might be a hint), and therefore representatives from different echelons of German units operating nearby were present at the grave's edge. Given that the victim is, from his kneeling position, looking slightly upward and to his left (our right), it is safe to say there is at least one more person standing to the right of the pit, and the cameraman is on the opposite edge, so we can assume the victim is surrounded by onlookers. Perhaps the only element of truth in the denier infographic is that yes, indeed Vinnitsa had been a place where just a few years earlier, in 1937 or 1938, people had been murdered during the Stalinist Great Purge and buried in unmarked graves as well (Vinnytsia massacre). And these were indeed discovered by the Germans during the German occupation in Ukraine by 1943. Just some of the evidence that Germans were indeed around Vinnytsia is the fact that one of Hitler's Führer HQs (Werwolf) was located there! This would only rule out a Soviet photo manipulation because the last thing they would want to do (after liberating the area only by March 20, 1944) is exhume their own 6-7 year old mass grave sites (kudos if they even find the location without having to dig around blindly!), make a person (victim or actor) stand at its edge, and shoot him (or not) and close the graves once more and then pin it on the Nazis. And if this photo was actually taken during the Stalinist purge, why on earth would the photo feature a bunch of Russians in stolen German uniforms from the future and have a German caption on its back? Especially considering the fact that the Soviets were not enemies of the Reich in 1937 or 38. As for Stalin's "Order No 428" saying "hey comrades, don some Wehrmacht and SS uniforms and do nasty stuff so we can pin it on the Germans", that's a denier hoax.

"The most famous holocaust photo a fraud?"

"The most famous holocaust photo a fraud?"

The allegation made by a British holocaust denier going by the online pen name "TheBlackRabbitofInlé" on his (now inactive) the "Winston Smith, the Ministry of Truth" blog[1], is that the famous Buchenwald photo shown to us, one that includes Elie Wiesel among the bunks, has actually been doctored, as an early newspaper clipping is shown where the inmate Simon Toncman in the foreground isn't visible at all. Was he added in retrospectively? That's what the rabbit claims, see caption. Interestingly, the opposite is the case, i . e. Simon Toncman was actually removed in the newspaper print due to the prude editor's squeamishness taking over his reporting of the holocaust when it comes to showing an emaciated, naked victim covering his modesty with some clothing. So much so, that in the supposedly original newspaper clipping, the first bunk post from the right (not visible in the photo with the inmate in the foreground) is actually missing its base, compared to the ones left of it. I'll leave it to Sergey Romanov from the HC blog to debunk this accomplishment of the Black Rabbit in more detail: http://holocaustcontroversies . blogspot . co . at/2016/07/the-denier-logic-at-its-finest-famous . html Bonus: you are treated to the BlackRabbitofInlé himself throwing a hissy fit in the comment section! So while we have proof of a newspaper editor doctoring an original image available in an enlarged format in the archive, what exactly does this prove? If Simon Toncman was added in, we would first have to find the original print of this famous photo without him (instead of just the pic in the newspaper), as well as the original photo where he has been taken from (so that he could be copy-pasted into the famous photo above), which also no denier has ever been able to find, and in any case, the collage would have only proven that someone was trying to emphasize the very real emaciation that affected most victims found in the liberated camps - which is something no sensible (oxymoron!) holocaust denier disputes in the first place. But the opposite is the case here: the foreground person was removed, so that the image would pass the censor, and in fact LESS of the holocaust's grim reality be shown to the public. So this is The Black Rabbit's greatest accomplishment: The image that adorns the front page of his blog to this day, in fact, PROVES American media were DOWNplaying holocaust atrocities to the civilian populace, rather than the opposite which deniers allege the press of doing. Thanks...I guess? These are the kinds of elephants holocaust deniers make out of flies, and even get the order wrong when doing so, and it only proves how pathetic their cause really is.

Collage using Sonderkommando Photographs

Collage using Sonderkommando Photographs

The Sonderkommando photographs are perhaps the most interesting of all photos taken in Auschwitz, taken secretly in August 1944 by Alberto "Alex" Errera, a Greek inmate in Auschwitz II-Birkenau, and smuggled out of the camp by September 4, 1944 along with the following note: "Urgent. Send two iron reels of film as soon as possible. It is possible to take pictures. We send you photographs from Birkenau - people who have been gassed. The photograph shows a heap of bodies piled outdoors. Bodies were burned outdoors when the crematorium could not keep pace with the number of bodies to be burned. In the foreground are bodies ready to be thrown on the heap. Another photograph shows one of the places in the forest where people were told to undress, allegedly for a bath, but in fact before being driven to the gas chambers. Send a reel as soon as possible. Send the enclosed photographs to Tell" (a member of the Cracow underground). The photographer was a member of the Sonderkommando, inmates forced to work in and around the gas chambers. He took two shots from inside Krematorium V, and two outside, shooting from the hip, unable to aim the camera with any precision. The Polish resistance smuggled the film out of the camp. The photographs were numbered 280–283 by the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum. Nos. 280 and 281 show the cremation of corpses in a fire pit, shot through the black frame of the Krema's doorway or window. No. 283 (not shown in the collage) is an image of trees, the result of the photographer aiming too high. Deniers have so far only been able to address the "actual origin" of ONE of these Sonderkommando photographs (I wonder why they never took pains to address the others?), which they have labeled "Ohio train wreck, 1912", although they have not been able to come up with independent pictures of this alleged train disaster that look similar enough in terms of people and location to be able to prove any kind of forgery having taken place (i . e. the addition of the corpses and the fence). Instead, what they managed to do was edit out some of the corpses in that SK photograph, point out an odd body shape, and call it a day. The "Ohio trainwreck" holocaust denier theory has been thoroughly DEBUNKED here: http://hungarianskeptics . blogspot . co . at/2012/12/a-charge-of-forgery-supported-by . html The final three photos added to the SK photographs in the above collage only proves how the location where these SK photographs were taken checks out with the location in Birkenau today. The surroundings are forested (the tree line may have grown a bit in the past 7 decades), the image aligns with the fence still standing today, and what's more, such an outdoor cremation would also explain the smoke plume in some of the aerial photographs, how conveniently located near Crematorium V!
Closeup of Sonderkommando photograph #280, taken during the 2nd half of August 1944

Closeup of Sonderkommando photograph #280, taken during the 2nd half of August 1944

As mentioned earlier, this Sonderkommando photo is showing heavy smoke, naked corpses and prisoners dragging corpses towards the bonfire in the backyard of Krema V in Birkenau. Smoke is emanating from the ground but the actual pyre is not visible, suggesting it is actually located in a pit - a detail which corroborates numerous eyewitness accounts on corpse cremation in trenches in Birkenau. Revisionists mention the marshy land around Auschwitz, and claim Birkenau had a high water table, but this would only be a problem during spring thaw and snow melt, not all year round. The photo above for example was taken during the peak of summer 1944, and any central European can attest to how hot summers can get, contrary to popular (non-European) belief about "cool European summers". During my visit to Poland and spending only 5 days outside touring Krakow and surroundings in early September 2016, I actually got a sun tan on my face! Germar Rudolf has argued that the fenceposts look nothing like the fenceposts in Auschwitz today, as these have curved tops. A closeup of SK 280 clearly shows that the fenceposts have the curved tops as well. While SK 281 does not, even a fool will realize that the image is slightly shaky, and therefore one of the first details to blur would be the curvature of the fencepost. But if you look closely at SK 281, you can still see the curvature of 2 of the 4 fenceposts' top parts (from left to right). Now then, three other things revisionists have pointed out is first of, the arm length of the man in the centre of the image, saying that his left arm is too long, or that his right arm has two elbows. If I stand up and slightly tilt my body to the left, my hand can indeed drop down to around knee height. And the man's right arm does not have two elbows - it's just a shadow created by his shirt sleeve. The second thing they point out, is that these men aren't dressed in the "striped pyjamas" of your typical concentration camp inmates. Well, do we even know what the Sonderkommando dressed like? Do we even know if they did NOT wear hats? Keep in mind these people worked near the gas chambers, where the victims had disrobed prior to entering. The SK clearly had access to heaps of civilian clothes, whether they were allowed or not, and the Kanada section of the camp was between Krema II, III and IV, V. And finally, the last thing revisionists point us to, is the "spaghetti person" near the legs of the SK in the middle. To them, it looks like a woman sporting an afro and kneeling with two impossibly curved arms of differing thickness raised above her head and sporting a very thin neck. To me, it appears the "afro" belongs to the corpse on the left, and the arms, neck and torso of the spaghetti person isnt even part of the same person. For instance, the right arm might be a detail of a corpse further back. All I can say is, it is very, very hard to make out more than just a handful of distinct corpses in this corpse mess even in this detailed zoom of # 280. I think the same effect starts to apply here as what applies when different people look at a cloud formation in the sky: different people see different shapes.
Closeup of Sonderkommando photograph #282: The undressing womenCloseup of Sonderkommando photograph #282: The undressing women

Closeup of Sonderkommando photograph #282: The undressing women

No. 282, shows a group of people undressing, with three naked women in the foreground just before they entered the gas chamber. They are standing in the forested area between Krematorium IV and V, and to the extreme right of the uncropped image (as shown in the collage earlier) you can see a chimney. From left to right, the first foreground woman seems to be looking straight ahead, the one next to her has her eyes downcast and the woman to the right of the image seems to have noticed the cameraman and is looking eerily, directly toward him. There's also another woman slightly to the left of the first foreground woman - this woman is a bit further back, and also seems to be walking in the same direction the other three are headed. Carlo Mattogno thinks what's happening in the background isn't a bunch of people undressing and/or stacking/sorting their clothes and other belongings on what seem to be luggage stacked on top of one another, but rather water tubs, and claims they're having some kind of a pool party splashing water around instead. He goes on to say that the woman and man to the right are both holding what appear to be water pails/jugs, reinforcing a bath scene hypothesis. However, if you look closely you will see that the right woman's arm would be waay too long to be holding a water pail - her "arm" in fact is severed - and therefore the "water pail" is actually an image artifact. It is harder to dismiss the "water pail" in the hand of the man to the extreme right of the image. However, the 2nd image makes his right arm a bit clearer and it suggests he is holding nothing, and the white splotch is in fact part of the image background. So Mattogno, the flagship of analysis-based holocaust denial is wrong (yet again!): https://www . youtube . com/watch?v=cTuVK27_bhY&feature=youtu . be For a more detailed refutation of Carlo Mattogno's claims on the image, see: http://holocaustcontroversies . blogspot . co . at/2013/05/the-photograph-of-crematorium-site . html Not only this, but Carlo Mattogno bases the image to the right as the original, and goes to make the claim that the women are too young to be sent to the gas chambers. The image on the left is in fact the original. The image on the right, is a retouched version. I do not know who retouched the image and why, but the fact that retouched versions of other SK photographs also exist leads me to believe retouching attempts have been made to enhance clarity. However in this case, the retouching actually tried to alter key aspects of the scene itself: The clearest evidence (bear in mind that I am talking about "our" left and "our" right, not "their" left and "their" right) of photo fakery in the right image is the fact that the foreground woman on the left seems to have gotten a new, young face (while her face is indistinguishable in the original). Furthermore, her body seems to have been smoothed out. The left woman in the background seems to have her body shadow removed to enhance her nakedness and also gotten a clearer face. And right of the 2nd foreground woman's shoulder there seems to be a new, dark patch added in the background. Finally, the biggest whopper comes in form of the complete body lift the 3rd foreground woman to the image's right received: While she (or he with long hair) looks like a hag sporting a rack befitting their age in the original, in the retouched photo it is definitely a "she" now, and also possessing the body of someone in their 20s or 30s, including B-cup breasts. This is no longer retouching for sake of better clarity - clearly someone made a serious attempt to make the foreground people look young and feminine. In any case, this is NOT the original photo, as my image comparison above demonstrates. Carlo Mattogno once again displays his intellectual dishonestly by basing his "research" off this image.
